I am currently writing a book about a serial killer. The murderer described his killings in missives send to local newspapers. In one of the missives, he described a seemingly prehistoric pistol- laser sight
. Does anyone know whether laser sights
existed in 1969? And whether this technique was common?
Here is the description:
(1969): Last Christmass In that epasode the police
were wondering how I could shoot + hit my victims in the dark. They did not openly state this, but implied this by saying it was a well lit night + I could see silowets on the horizon. Bullshit that area is srounded by high hills + trees. What I did was tape a small pencel flash light to the barrel of my gun.
If you notice, in the center of the beam of light if you aim it at a wall or ceiling you will see a black or darck spot in the center of the circle of light about 3 to 6 inches across. When taped to a gun barrel, the bullet will strike in the center of the black dot in the light. All I had to do was spray them as if it was a water hose; there was no need to use the gun sights. I was not happy to see that I did not get front page coverage.”
